Chris Scott Greenwood (born July 19, 1979), better known by his stage name Manafest, is a Canadian rapper and rock artist from Pickering, Ontario. He has been nominated and won multiple awards for the GMA Canada Covenant Awards, GMA Dove Awards, and Juno Awards. Signed for almost a decade with BEC Recordings, Manafest became fully independent as of early 2015 and continues to write and record music.
After a skateboarding accident in 1998, Chris Greenwood shifted his focus to musical writing and began to produce music emerging under the stage name Manafest in 2000.
In 2001, Manafest debuted with his EP, Misled Youth. The release garnered "Modern Rock/Alternative Song of the Year" for the song "Freedom" at the GMA Canada Covenant Awards in 2002. The following year, Manafest released his first full-length album My Own Thing and attracted the notice of Trevor McNevan of the Ontario-based rock band Thousand Foot Krutch. This led to his signing with an internationally distributed label, BEC Recordings under the Uprok Records label.
